What are Subject Readings?

The Library’s Subject Readings Service provides online access to all essential readings related to a course. This includes eReadings, books in the Short Loans collection, past exams, chapters and articles. All resources for a course are listed in the one place, and are copyright compliant.

All Subject Readings for the current session are available via the Library Website, or via the My Library tab in Moodle

Subject Readings provide:

  • Direct links to eBooks, eReadings (articles, book chapters) and exam papers
  • Direct links to websites
  • Direct links to catalogue records for print items held in Short Loans
